Organisations and individuals support the GQII programme in many ways.
The authors of the GQII are in continuous exchange with representatives of national, regional and international organisations for metrology, standardisation and accreditation, with international organisations involved in the promotion of Quality Infrastructure and with technical experts from many parts of the world.
The International Cooperation of the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) is currently supporting the expansion of the GQII database to 185 countries (and territories) with funds from the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). The support includes the creation of country profile scorecards.
